David Murray is one of the most recorded musicians as a leader in the history of jazz, with well over 200 celebrated projects. As a tenor saxophonist, he perfected an instantly recognizable approach to improvisation that even in its freest flights, acknowledges the gravity of a tradition he honors more than most & altered the context for his improvisations as an infinite mosaic of musical challenges & explorations. He has won numerous awards over his vast career, including a Grammy for the Best Jazz Instrumental Group Performance, for his Tribute to John Coltrane and a Guggenheim Fellowship.
Kahil El’Zabar is one of the most prolific innovators of his generation, with more than 60 well-received projects & numerous international awards as musician & composer. In 2014, he was knighted by the Counsel General of France, and christened as a “Chevalier Medal of Letters”. In 2012, President Obama’s administration awarded him the International Ambassador’s Award in the Arts.
